<p>My daughter and I are at the check out with a few groceries.  The cashier swipes my Air Miles card, looks at her till, then picks up the intercom phone and calls for someone.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>"Hmmm.....what's going on?"  I think to myself.  "Maybe she pressed a wrong key and has the till locked up and needs someone to get it unlocked"</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Time passes and she's standing there waiting.  I'm looking at her and looking at the ever increasing line up of people behind me.  People are shifting from foot to foot and giving me the stink eye.  I'm avoiding their hostile glares by shuffling paper in my wallet.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Finally a guy shows up.  He apologises to the cashier for taking so long and swipes his card to over ride something.  He turns to me and says "Congratulations!  You're one of our top 200 customers and I'd like to thank you for your patronage!  Is there anything we can do for you?"</p>
<p> </p>
<p>"Uhm..err...no" I reply</p>
<p> </p>
<p>"Great" he says.  "Thanks again" and he walks away.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I look at the cashier, then at the people in the winding line up, who by the way, are not the least bit amused.  The woman directly behind me says "Congratulations" without a hint of a smile.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>"Well, That was fantastic!" I say "And you guys had to wait to hear that!"</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I grab my bags and leave as fast as possible.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>WTF!!  If they're going to put in harms way they at least could have compt my tortillas!</p>

Santa Fe transmission. If it was the Porsche I'd have gotten enough Air Miles to buy a plane. <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//biggrin.gif"></p>
